    I have a dell 946 all in one printer that I would like to use with my macbook. How can I set it up?

    patience! ;)

    i checked dell's site....as far as i can tell, the dell printers are only compatible with windows. do you have an install disc or any documentation for the printer?

    I doubt the install disc would have the driver if the website does not. You might have to try a generic driver with limited functionality. Try doing that after connecting the printer.

    i wanted him to read the disc to see which system(s) it includes drivers for...that's all. :)

    it's probably a good idea to go ahead and look at an HP all in one or another brand with support for OS X. you can pick them up fairly cheaply now.
